Hi,

We have several 100 servers and we have few accounts used as a service account on these servers.  It is a requirement by the application for these service accounts to be member of Domain Admins Group.

I would like to prevent some of the service accounts RDP access on all our servers.  What is the quickest way of accomplishing this?  Can I do something on the user level like Deny RDP Access etc.??

Help please.

You can do this via GPO. Remember that this change can be reverted back with this account as it is a domain admin account.

Not recommend but can be done via GPO.

Before we leave it unquestioned... :)
Why would you need to have those accounts setup as domain admins? Normally, you would use service accounts and assign/delegate just some privileges to them and not the whole lot.
